Coffee Talk 14: a chance to catch up on the little things in life—both sweet and salty! June 2019
Happy June! Something about June always brings a smile to my face. Maybe I’m still thinking of my childhood when school was finally done and it was time for summer fun in June? How has your June been so far? Have you been making all the ice cream and summer plans for much-needed summer vacay times?
I can’t wait to talk about that, moving, cookies, and more today! Grab a nice, cold iced tea and grab a seat by me on the hammock. 🙂 It’s time for our monthly chat ‘n gab. Looking forward to hearing what you’ve been up to! Be sure to let me know in the comments below.
Moving Plans… So we’re moving very soon! Let the countdown begin! Haha. Just kidding… I’m not really the countdown type, but I am super, super excited to be moving to a new city that Erik and I’ve never lived in before. It’s very thrilling. This move will be different from the last in that we won’t get rid of everything lol. Alright, that’s a tad bit of an exaggeration, but one of the last times we moved (from San Diego to Maine), we moved with only a few suitcases, and did the whole thing via airplane. Cross-country!! As such, we didn’t have much room for… like, anything.
This time around, we’re planning on keeping more than a few suitcases worth of stuff—especially since our current apartment is the place where we truly started to build Beaming Baker into a business. Like, we have actual matching office desks (adulting, baby!), tons of kitchen equipment, and a bunch of Seville metal shelves with like 500 bags of vegan chocolate chips and jars upon jars of almond butter on them.
So our real challenge is figuring out what to keep, what to give to my mom, and what to donate.
Do you have any plans to move this summer? Erik keeps telling me that summer is moving season, and that we *might* just have a better time finding an apartment since there will be so many available. Fingers crossed!
Do you have any tips for apartment hunting? Erik and I’ve been apartment hunting like a million times (courtesy of the 10 times we’ve moved in the past 10 years)… but we don’t ever seem to find an apartment that we truly, truly love. Some of that was because of our limited budget at the time, most of that was because we were always in some kind of frantic rush. Meaning: we had 3 days, tops, to find an apartment in a new city. A few times, we only had 1 day!! .
This time around, we’re giving ourselves a longer stretch of time to search, and we’re really going to make sure we at least 75% love it. Lol.
Do you have any suggestions, tips or advice on how to find an awesome apartment? Maybe you have some tips on how to find an amazing apartment in a new city. 🙂 We’re all ears!
